In The Garden



The plumerias are blooming sweetly, with a scent so divine it can transport one mentally to more tropical climes.



And although the hibiscus are unscented, they evoke thoughts of the tropics as well.



But the ginkgo tree knows the truth, as its leaves are tinged ever slightly with autumn's gold - summer is drawing to a close.

I don't know plumerias at all I don't think they grow here in the UK. They are certainly a very beautiful flower. Make the most of them for autumn is on its way.
